Science committee consults on low carb diets for type 2 diabetes

The scientific advisory committee on nutrition (SACN) has published a consultation on its draft report on lower carbohydrate diets for people with type 2 diabetes.

Public Health England (PHE) asked SACN – an independent committee of scientific experts that advises government on nutrition and related health matters – to review the evidence on the effectiveness of low carb diets in helping people with type 2 diabetes to manage the condition.
